May Around The Web

Summer is upon us and May is already coming to a close! This month started out with our California trip and so much has happened since then! This month I’ve been working hard on an internal project on top of some fun lettering assignments, Dale and I have celebrated two weddings (with another this weekend), we spent a weekend at the lake for my Grandma’s birthday, and I’ve been to lots of Holiday Mart meetings and a few Fusion classes. The rest of our summer will be much more laid back and I’m looking forward to time at home and (hopefully) the pool. This month I also loved The Everygirl’s Summer Bucket List. I’m definitely adding the DIY Popsicle to my summer to-do’s!

December Around The Web

Hello, friends! December is always a whirlwind and this month I was extra grateful to be able to spend so much time with family and friends. We celebrated my mom’s birthday, I went to a gingerbread decorating party, went to several other holiday parties (including one with Dale’s co-workers, an ornament exchange with college friends and the Jingle Ball), and ended the month with all our traditional Christmas festivities. I also love all the holiday inspiration around the web this time of year. While some of these finds will have to be put on hold until next year they are just as lovely!

  • First up, this adorable A-Frame DIY. Definitely on the list to make for next Christmas!

  • Also, these cookies.

  • One of my favorite Christmas presents I received. Our kitty Otto has been extra ornery lately, only fair to warn visitors.

  • Hoping to make this recipe with the pecans I received this season from my mother-in-law.

  • My all-time favorite pants in a new pattern.

  • Already re-labeled all my spices with this handy label maker!

  • Loved this article, Dale and I watch Love Actually every Christmas Eve Eve when we exchange our gifts.

  • Just what I need to head into the new year.

  • Maybe Miami needs to be on my travel wish list for 2019?

  • This recipe is one of my new favorites, easy and healthy.

Happy Holidays!


October Around The Web

Hello, friends! The spookiest time of year has arrived and I’ve been busy baking pumpkin muffins and watching the new Sabrina The Teenage Witch on Netflix. This month I traveled to Cincinnati for work, fit in a trip to the Louisberg Cider Mill, celebrated Dale’s 27th birthday with Brew at the Zoo, Mexican food, and a family pizza dinner, and I’m gearing up for the first Halloween in our new house. I’m really curious whether we will have lots of trick or treaters or not! Here are some of my favorite finds around the web this month:

Happy haunting!


September Around The Web

Fall is upon us! September has been one of the most relaxing months I have had in awhile, and other than Dale working nights for a few weeks was really wonderful. This month I spent time with friends, attended Made in the Middle, shopped at Hallmarket, and went to the Plaza Art Fair. It felt great to wrap up our Europe photo book and GoPro video and I’ve done lots of yard work! I never knew getting grass seed going could feel so satisfying. Here are a few of my favorite finds around the web this month:

April Around The Web

Hello, friends! Spring has finally decided to arrive in KC and I'm loving it! This month has been a whirlwind — two of my close friends got married, I traveled to Gulf Shores with our St. Louis friends for one last trip before they all finish school, and this weekend I have a bachelorette party. I'm a little exhausted but it has all been totally worth it, so many happy memories. I've also made a few purchases this month I will share below, but my favorite find was Spencer Charles new script alphabet Sinistral Hand — designed especially for lefties like me!

  • I've also been admiring Nick Matej's work this month, it's wonderful. 
  • Kelly's closet doors have my wheels spinning for some projects at the house. 
  • Ever since watching the documentary about Iris Apfel I love reading articles about her. These photos are awesome too. 
  • I know renovating our bathroom is a looong way off, but I'm saving these ideas.
  • Think.Make.Share. hosted a maker exchange and so many of my talented friends participated! I would love to do this with my friends outside of work too. 
  • Always on the hunt for great clean beauty options
  • This month I won an Instagram give-away from Enjoy! If you live in KC definitely try them out, their green mojito smoothie is my absolute favorite. 
  • I also am testing out Branch Basics multi-purpose cleaner this month and so far so good!
  • One of my friends is getting married later this Summer and I knew this would be the perfect dress for the occasion, can't wait for it to arrive! Congrats Julia, the collection is beautiful!
  • And last but not least, I am headed to New York next week and loved reading about some great places to take pictures in the city.

And I'm off to enjoy the sunshine!

December Around The Web

2018 is upon us and I am currently in Nashville with friends to ring in the New Year! This month I fully embraced the holiday spirit and spent time baking cookies, decorating our tree(s), I hosted a holiday ornament exchange, and spent lots of time with family for our traditional Christmas events. I hope you were able to spend time with those you love this season as well. Around the web there was endless holiday inspiration, and I am hoping to try this champagne cocktail on New Year's: 

So long 2017, Happy New Year!
